ahch_mikahla Amos 5:21 I #hate, I #despise your #feast days, and I will not #smell in your solemn #assemblies

The tradition of #baking bread marked with a #cross is linked to #paganism as well as Christianity. The pagan Saxons would bake cross buns at the beginning of spring in honour of the #goddess Astarte- being the origin of the name #Easter. The cross represented the #rebirth of the world after winter and the #four #quarters of the #moon, as well as the four #seasons and the wheel of life.

The #Christians saw the Crucifixion in the cross bun and, as with many other pre-Christian traditions, #replaced their pagan meaning with a Christian one - the resurrection of Christ at Easter.

According to Elizabeth David, it wasn't until Tudor times that it was permanently linked to Christian celebrations. During the reign of Elizabeth I, the London Clerk of Markets issued a decree #forbidding the #sale of #spicedbuns except at #burials, at #Christmas or on #GoodFriday. This custom was eventually taken on by the #slaves brought to the #WestIndies from their #European #oppressors

amitz_nasi Psalms 111:10 KJV

The fear of the Lord is the #beginningofwisdom: a good understanding have all they that do #hiscommandments: his praise endureth for ever.

Psalms 94:12-14, 16-18 KJV

Blessed is #theman whom thou #chastenest, O Lord , and #teachest him #outofthylaw; That thou mayest give him #restfromthedays of #adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked. For the Lord will not #castoffhispeople, neither will he #forsakehisinheritance. Who will rise up #forme against the evildoers? or who will #standupforme against the workers of iniquity? Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence. When I said, My foot slippeth; thy #mercy, O Lord , held me up.

Proverbs 1:7 KJV

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but #fools #despise #wisdomandinstruction.

James 1:5-8 KJV

If any of you #lackwisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth #toallmen #liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him #askinfaith, nothing #wavering. For he that wavereth is like a #waveofthesea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A #doubleminded man is unstable in all his ways.

Proverbs 9:9-10 KJV

Give #instruction to a #wiseman, and he will be yet #wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
